Need just a little more joy? How about this:
On Dec. 10, sixty disadvantaged kids and their personal elves gathered at Spokane International Airport in preparation for the special day. After getting their boarding passes, they went through security (and customs, of course), and then boarded the plane.
The elves charted a Boeing 737, fondly known as "Santa One," from Alaska Airlines. It is one of the few jetliners available with a navigation system designed to reach the North Pole.
The purpose of trip was simple: Kids with disabilities are challenged each and every day of the year. Santa wanted to make sure these children had not lost their sense of wonder. He told his elves to bring them to the North Pole so that they could spend some time together.
